Proof of Time Travel?
Some savvy Internet users have noticed a timeline discrepancy on the cover of this old crime novel.
This is the cover of the French edition of a Chester Himes novel titled All Shot Up. Published in 1971, it appears to show a woman holding a smartphone decades before they were invented.
Unfortunately the photographer is unknown and hasn’t come forward to comment on the strange image.
Viewers have been quick to call the woman a time traveler and that it’s not a smartphone, rather some kind of futuristic device not presently known.
More level headed commenters have said it’s nothing more than a thin purse or makeup holder, but have agreed that the way she’s holding it does resemble someone using a modern mobile phone.
Time Traveling Space Man?
There is a carving on a church in Salamanca, Spain that has left historians baffled.
On a wall on the New Cathedral of Salamanca, built in 1513, there is a detailed mural that features a mysterious carving.
About halfway up the wall there is a figure that clearly resembles an astronaut. It’s wearing what looks like a helmet with a space suit and boots. There even appears to be some kind of oxygen pack on the figures back.
Speculation has been rife ever since the sculpture was noticed. Some believe a time traveler visited Salamanca in the 16th century, giving inspiration to the artist the created the mural. Others think aliens made contact in the area, spreading knowledge of space travel. A more grounded theory suggests that the space man was added during restoration in the last decade. In Spain it’s often tradition to add a modern motif whenever restoration work is done.
One of the more wild theories is that the ancient stonemason accurately predicted space travel more than 450 years before it happened.
Time Traveler at Mike Tyson Fight
While so far we’ve been looking at pictures of time travelers, this next video has left analysts stumped.
In a 1995 fight between Mike Tyson and Peter McNeeley in Las Vegas, someone in the crowd was spotted filming the event on what looks like a modern smartphone.
The spectator is holding the device in portrait mode which is unlike any camera in the mid-90’s. The lens is clearly in the top left, similar to today’s Apple or Android phones.
This video, which was uploaded to a Youtube channel called ‘Jammy Bantam’, has been shared thousands of times and racked up over eight million views.
This famous 1995 bout was touted as Mike Tyson’s comeback after spending three years in prison on rape charges.
The hype for the fight was huge and millions of Americans tuned in via pay-per-view to watch.
The match only lasted 89 seconds with Tyson securing an easy victory over McNeeley, winning by disqualification.
The sheer volume of money surrounding the fight has lead many to speculate that the person in the audience holding the alleged smartphone is indeed a time traveler who has come back to place a bet on the fight and earn a fortune.
If someone knew that the fight was only going to go for a fraction of one round, a hefty sum of money could indeed be gained.
What do you think? Savvy time traveler looking to earn big or are there mid-90’s cameras that fit the look and filming style of that device? Love to get your opinion on this fascinating piece of footage in the comments section below.
